%. >> and governor jindal was visibly annoyed by mitt romney ease comments. but the question may be, did he do a good job in speaking for republicans, trying to find a way forward? a different way? >> i think governor jindal said all things. the test will come in the months and years about the positions the republican party will have to change. the first test in the fiscal cliff negotiation. are they going to continue to insist that the people at the top who make the most money should not participate in solving the problem. are they going to insist in the beginning of next year when we turn to immigration reform that they're not going to help solve the problem of coming up with a comprehensive immigration reform bill. the problem for the republicans is they have to change positions. when they change positions people in the base will be very unhappy, and it's going to divide the party. but governor jindal is saying all the right things. the questions will be do the actions follow his words? >> also looking back to try to understand what happened during the 2012 election, running mate paul ryan, as you

election. there has been mostly complimentary talk about governor romney saying he was a good man. he also had a good plan but there has been talk about he never really connected fully with the american people. to that point, governor jindal was asked about a comment romney made on a conference call yesterday with donors. he said he lost because president obama offered, quote gifts to young people and minorities. jindal rejected that and alluded to romney's damaging 47% comment, saying the gop had to fight for 100% of the vote. >> let's show we're the party not of big banks, wall street, of bailouts, not big business. we're the party that stands for families and small businessings, those simply working hard to pay their bills so their kids can get even better jobs. >> reporter: there's also been a lot of talk about the hispanic vote. of course president obama got 71%. mitt romney just 27%. compare that to the 44% that president bush got in 2004. you can see the party has its demographics problem. they're talking about softening their stance on immigration. possibly talking about, comprehen
and not the reason governor romney lost. what's the reaction been like in washington? >> republicans are very disappointed by this, and there are three big reasons. first of all, this is sour grapes, like this certainly isn't gracious. second, it's just not accurate. there were many, many other factors that were involved, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almos
in louisiana, the governor, bobby jindall, staunch romney supporterch these remarks, are categorically untrue. >> jindall, as conservative as they get weft have got to stop dividing the american voters. if we are going to be a competitive party and when elections on the national stage, and fight for principles we need two messages, one we are fighting for 100% of the votes. and second, our policies, benefit every american who wants to pursue the american dream. a lot of infighting between republicans. it is reminiscent, comments, about, the 47% tape, i'm confused as to how contraception, health care or college loans are racial issues and how they're, they're gifts to people. as opposed to tools to help people live a better or healthier life. >> you have to think this, this phone call with some of the top donors. here he was, they gave basically $900 million. sure they had some questions and were demanding some answers. because he didn't expect to raise $500 million. there he was raising $900 million. they're look what happened. you were telling us one thing. it didn't pan out. to be that way
. hilary, you just heard the governor of louisiana, bobby jindal, he's very critical of mitt romney, the campaign he ran. what did you make of that? >> well, i think there's just a whole lot of distancing going on. pretty typical after a losing campaign. i thought, you know, governor jindal spoke well about some of the mistakes republicans have made. a little bit of a mixed message. i think this was a values election, not the demographic election that some people like governor jindal and mitt romney have been talking about. so i think he needs to be clearer about those values. he did say we ought to not be protecting tax cuts -- you know, tax policies for the wealthy. i think the challenge for somebody like governor jindal who just is sort of sitting back and criticizing now is to take on republicans that are relevant. because mitt romney's no longer relevant. go to john boehner, go to mitch mcconnell and say let's promote these policies that help poor people that help the middle class that promote jobs. that's what the president's been trying to do. that's what he's calling for in
this was a values election, not the demographic election that some people like governor jindal and mitt romney have been talking about. so i think he needs to be clearer about those values. he did say we ought to not be protecting tax cuts -- you know, tax policies for the wealthy. i think the challenge for somebody like governor jindal who just is sort of sitting back and criticizing now is to take on republicans that are relevant. because mitt romney's no longer relevant. go to john boehner, go to mitch mcconnell and say let's promote these policies that help poor people that help the middle class that promote jobs. that's what the president's been trying to do. that's what he's calling for in saying that the wealthy should pay their fair share. it'd be nice of some of these moderate thinkers or new thinkers like jindal actually held the republicans who are in power to task a little more instead of kicking the last guy down the road. >> you tweeted this, ana navarro, livid at romney saying obama won because offered minorities "gifts." as if he didn't alienate hispanics enough wliel running. look
them out to vote. >> some republicans were quick to distance themselves and the party from romney's comments. here's what louisiana governor bobby jindal said. >> absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. that is not -- i don't think that that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party, and i think that has to be one of the most fundamental take-aways from this election. >> even some other republicans, even more fired up, including our cnn contributor and republican strategist anna navarro. you have been slamming romney on twitter. you tweeted this. you said romney, take responsibility for being a flawed candidate with delusional campaign with no vision. hispanics don't want gifts. we want opportunity." were you surprised at romney's comments? >> i just couldn't believe it. you know, i thought we had heard the last chapter of things romney says that he shouldn't say, and then he strikes again even after the election. this is just not constructive. i completely agree with governor jindal. i don't think it represents t
. something you will hear about in 2016, where you used to live in louisiana, the governor, bobby jindal who was a staumplg romney supporter, that these remarks by romney are categorically untrue. >> he did. jindal is as conservative as they get, what he said, we have to stop dividing the american voters. if we are going to be a competitive party and when elections on the national stage, and continue to fight for our conservative principles, we need two messages to get out loudly and clearly. one, we are fighting for 100% of the votes. and second, our policies, benefit every american who wants to pursue the american dream. period. a lot of infighting between republicans. as they try to sort through the aftermath of the election here. but it is reminiscent, these comments, about the 47% tape. i'm confused as to how contraception, health care or college loans are racial issues and how they are -- they're gifts to people, as opposed to tools to help people live a better or healthier life. >> you have to think this, this phone call with some of the top donors. here he was, they gave basically $9
